As you begin creating articles in FamilySearch Wiki, they can get rather long. Finding the part you may want to edit at a later date can be difficult in a long page of coding. One way to make sections easier to find is to insert comments regarding the contents of a section to remind you what it contains as you are searching the page.
- Since comments are not processed by your browser, you can write whatever you want. They are completely ignored by your browser and can be any length.
How to create a comment
- Comments are created by typing the following wikitext codes:
- NOTICE the < (angle bracket) plus the ! (exclamation) mark.
- NOTICE two dashes following the ! mark. You have to have at least two dashes but you can have as many as you want.
- NOTICE the two dashes and the > at the end. You have to have at least two dashes but you can have as many as you want.
- Your comment can be as long as you want.
- It is more noticeable if the coding extends across the page with line breaks before and after:
You can never have too many comments
- Comments are far easier to find than looking for headers. Use them often and as much as you like. Again, the browser completely ignores them so don't worry about inserting too many or think you will mess up the coding.
